Paolo Nutini - Better Man (Live)


If you think you know Paolo Nutini, think again. His million selling 2006 debut album, ‘These Streets’, established the young Scotsman as a leading light amongst the new wave of singer-songwriters. Paolo’s extraordinary follow up, ‘Sunny Side Up’, released June 1st casts him in a whole other light.

Written by Paolo and produced by Paolo and Ethan Johns, ... Read more in Amazon's Paolo Nutini Store

Product Description

Paolo Nutini brings a career defining album with Caustic Love that showcases his maverick talent and incredible vocal prowess with a maturity way beyond his years.

Almost five years after the release of his classic Sunny Side Up album, Paolo Nutini stepped back in the ring with Caustic Love an album that aims straight for the heart with a heady mix of stripped down soul and cast-iron funk as exemplified by first single "Scream (Funk My Life Up)".

Released on Atlantic Records, Caustic Love features highly original songs written by Paolo and largely produced by Paolo and Dani Castelar. The album was recorded in Valencia, London, Glasgow and the USA.

This is a groove laden, dark & stormy musical celebration that looked set to establish Paolo Nutini as one of the finest songwriters and performers to emerge from the UK in recent years. Lightning strikes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Progression reaches it's peak 30 April 2014
By Jamie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a truly outstanding album, well worthy of 5 stars and more. It is probably going to be the pinnacle of Paolo's career and without a doubt it's his current pinnacle.

The first track "Scream (Funk up my life)" is a great funky rocker. Catchy, tuneful and above all else a superb start to the album - it really sets the tone of what is to come.

Next up is "Let me down easy" - this is a really good soulful number and this shows that Paolo has really developed as an artist. It's a great track with lots of layers and great vocal male versus female dialogues portions.

After the first of the interludes (the only downside to this album) is the track "One Day", currently I'm struggling to get into this track. It continues the soulful layers but it slows the tempo down considerably. It seems to be popular though so it's probably just me!

Jumping forward, tracks 7 ("Better Man") and 8 ("Iron Sky") are fantastic. The former is a slow builder which tells a tale of self improvement. A really nice gentle soulful track at the right point in the album. The latter is an absolute belter, this builds and builds into a true arena stopping crescendo. Paolo's vocals are coarse, gritty and passionate. I absolutely love it!

Next is "Diana" - not sure why but I keep thinking of MJ's Dirty Diana! This doesn't bear any relation to that track though. This is another highlight for me. A really slow, catchy and soulful number, there's elements of Bill Withers and Lenny Kravitz in there. It's essentially just a love song, but it captivates and holds the listener during it's short 3 and a bit minutes.

Finally, a mention for "Looking for Something".

5.0 out of 5 stars So much soul! 22 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an incredible album! It's probably my favourite of the year so far and I only downloaded it yesterday. Immediate gratification!

Paolo Nutini is inspired. The album is full of variety, passion and funk. I really hope it gains the recognition it deserves.

Most definitely a 5/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Lead For His Pencil 14 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
Based on the video I saw of Iron Sky, that Adele raved about so much, I was really anticipating this new album. Gone are the relentlessly chirpy tunes of the previous album, as this is a bluesy, soul filled epic with some funky beats and heart-rending tunes.

The album cover prepares you for a grown up, heartfelt journey, and it delivers on every level. The vocals are so powerful, especially on Iron Sky, that you forget for a second that this is the same person who gave us Pencil Full Of Lead. I was blown away by the vocal performance, the excellent arrangements, and the ease with which he flicks through different styles.

Terrific album, absolutely love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Paolo firmly in the soul groove... 14 April 2014
By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Paolo Nutini has a great voice and uses it well with excellent phrasing but his pretty boy looks have probably meant he hasn't got the critical recognition that his music really deserves. This new album sees him firmly in the soul groove, from the funk of opener 'Scream (funk my life up)' to the soul ballads like 'One day' and even the laid-back Allen Toussaint New Orleans-style R&B of 'Numpty'. There is plenty of variety here, the restrained almost acoustic song 'Better man', while 'Iron sky' (with it's sample from Chaplin's "Great Dictator") recalls the social-conciousness soul of classic Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield. The record sounds great and if there is a nod to the past this isn't the retro-soul of James Hunter or Sharon Jones, the backing is a perfect blend of old and new sounds, songs like the Janelle Monáe duet 'Fashion' sound bang-up-to date and many are also very commercial. Nutini has produced a record he can be proud of and which should prove to be very successful.

5.0 out of 5 stars The guy's delivered - and then some 17 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a CD filled with soul and blues and feeling. It's definitely a more mature sound, more confident songwriting and a more confident vocal delivery. This is the sound of a man in his stride.

After first listening to this cd, I've looked back and can see that songs of his like "Pencil full of lead" were stepping stones to get to the sound he wanted.

Some of the songs here sound like Marvin would have snapped them up, and Otis wouldn't have said no. Kind of like a modernised/updated soul, of the '60s. Truely foot-tapping stuff. Perfect release time too - just before summer. I'd say this'll be the soundtrack to many a good night, full of alcohol sunshine and good times.

Mr Nutini has been gone from the scene for a good few years now, I'd say. However, wherever it was he went he has found soul and funk and has brought them both back in abundance.

Highly recommended CD - possibly the best of the year!

5.0 out of 5 stars A sublime masterpiece from a genius! 17 Jun 2014
By bez
Format:Audio CD
This man is a music genre chameleon, just when you think you can pin him down into a genre he totally blows your assumption out of the water, with this soulful blend of fantastic retro yet modern and original tunes will leave you opened mouthed!

Let Me Down Easy, One Day, Numpty, (the quite simply fantastic) Better Man, (then even better) Iron Sky etc etc, are all tracks you would swear must be copies from the legends of soul music...but no, all Paolo's original's and it makes the album even more stunning.

You want an album for Summer then box ticked, an album for a relationship then box ticked, an album that's simply life affirming then box ticked, it really is that good.
